Pringle of Scotland’s vision for menswear next spring is a very “aw shucks” moment in a palette of khaki and cornflower blue. While we can’t help but associate that with good ole boys from the Midwest, it’s probably safer to assume this has to do more with Scotland’s farmlands than Iowa’s. That’s not to say that the line comes off as provincial; the Pringle man looks like he’d be more at home in the library than behind a plow. The demure colors come in homey knit sweaters, flowing khaki trenches and sheer argyle sweater shirts that were paraded down the runway in Milan on Monday. Cardigans and skinny ties add just the right amount of nerdy rocker appeal, as evidenced by the show’s performers, Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand, who looked right at home in the collection.

Last night, 230 Fifth’s rooftop bar was transformed into a tropical oasis complete with cheetahs, sequin-covered bathing suits and drag queens. Amidst the mannequins, palm fronds and many, many cosmos, Patricia Field held court over a fashion show complete with swimwear, sunglasses and flowing chiffon bathing gowns alternately created by the Sex and the City designer’s House of Field team, Ivana Sert and The Blonds. We take you through a photographic experience of the night’s events—and though you may not have been in the Malibu Barbie dreamland yourself, these pictures will take you close enough.
